A Typical Day at City Stars
Let’s take you through a day in the life of our City Stars students
Arrival & Perceptual Motor Program
As children arrive for the day, they are encouraged to write their name (sign in) and complete a puzzle if time permits.
We start our day with a fun physical activity or game as part of our Perceptual Motor Program (using the yard, school hall or tennis court) – This movement-based program is embedded in our daily Kindergarten curriculum to help students improve coordination, fitness, balance, and eye-tracking skills.
The class will break into small groups and rotate around different games and activities that promote early Literacy and Numeracy skills, build fine and gross motor skills and promote working together and creativity. Parents are welcome to assist with Learning Groups and join in.
Our daily Circle Time promotes oral language development, establishes listening skills and turn-taking and promotes children to become more confident speaking in front of their peers.
Children have access to our yard, which includes our own vegetable garden, fort, and sandpit and then a large flat-grassed area for the children to run around on or use the obstacle course.
Using the yard, hall and tennis court, the City Stars take part in a Perceptual Motor Program for 30 minutes each day. This movement-based program is embedded in our daily Kindergarten curriculum to help students improve coordination, fitness, balance, and eye-tracking skills
